A mix of old and new, from Gowan  to Plaskett, a good set.

1. Barenaked Ladies

“Jane”

The Barenaked Ladies are a major Canadian success story.  Their cheeky style and interesting lyrics set them apart from most contemporaries.  This is their first entry on the best music list, the first of many.

2. Gowan

“Strange Animal”

A classic tune from a well-travelled artist.  He is the current lead singer for Styx.


3. Gandharvas

“Downtime”

Great song from the early 90’s.  Kick back and enjoy.

4. Chalk Circle

“NIMBY”

Some classic 80’s rock, a bit mellow and not my favourite song by the band.

5. Joel Plaskett Emergency

“Natural Disaster”

Love this band.  Prolific and good, a deadly combination.

About John

I enjoy travel, sports, music and anything else that jumps up at me for the moment, which is why I blog. There will be lots of music and travel posts and a smattering of sports and humour. I enjoy promoting Canada and am unabashedly a proud Canuck.

  1. Nice set.
    Really dug Plaskett.
    Chalk Circle sounded like Michael Penn.

  2. Reblogged this on Gossip Fever.
